Personally would try and keep a door on the freezer section. As you know these old fridges do not work all that great in warm weather to start with. Leaving the door off may result in to much moisture entering the freezer compartment and ice forming. The more ice that forms in the freezer section the poorer the fridge
I was just going to post a question about this, wondering if the lack of a door would cause the fridge
to work too hard overall. I did *prop* the door back in, but you are right. Without the door it does ice up. Amazingly though, even without the door, a container of water still froze solid. This little nearly 30/yo fridge
is still doing a pretty good job.
Yah, the painter's tape is not the best -- I just wanted something temporary that wouldn't leave a lot of goop while I looked for a replacement.
The frustrating thing is that when I first did a search, a few months ago, those parts were still listed. Coulda shoulda jumped and ordered them then.
